Summer is the season of beach parties, outdoor adventures, and fun in the sun. But with all the sun exposure, heat, and humidity, keeping your skin and hair looking their best can be challenging. That's why we've put together some of the best summer hacks and beauty care tips to help you maintain healthy, glowing skin and luscious locks all season.
How can I make my skin and hair glow and be healthy?
Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the first step to achieving gorgeous skin and hair. That means eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough sleep. But you can also use some summer hacks to give your skin and haircare an extra boost.
Use sunscreen: The most important thing you can do to protect your skin in the summer is to use sunscreen. If you intend to be outside for an extended period, pick a broad-spectrum sunscreen
with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply it every two hours. Hydration
: Drinking water is crucial, but you can also hydrate your skin using a toner or mist throughout the day. Or to give yourself that instant energy boost and keep yourself hydrated for a longer time with electrolytes. After all, if you're hydrated, your skin is hydrated. Fast&Up Reload can be used as it contains five essential electrolytes with Vitamin C and Vitamin B12 to keep you hydrated and energised. Use mild skincare products
: In the summer, your skin can feel constricted by heavy creams and lotions. Instead of heavier products that will clog your pores or leave you feeling oily, try lighter ones like gels and serums. Chicnutrix has recently launched its K-Skincare
beauty range which consists of 3 serums, one sheet mask and sunblock. Exfoliate frequently
: Since throughout the summer, sweat, sunscreen, and other items can accumulate on your skin and cause dullness and breakouts. Exfoliating often can help keep your skin looking fresh and bright by removing dead skin cells. Shower with cold water
: Hot water can dry up your skin's natural oils, leaving it flaky and dry. Instead, take a cold shower to assist your skin in retaining moisture. Put on a hat:
When outside, cover your face and scalp to protect them from the sun's harmful rays. Maintain a nutritious diet:
Eating a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and other nutrient-dense foods will help keep your skin young-looking and healthy from the inside out.
Sun protection for your hair is important because, like your skin, it can suffer UV damage from the sun. Put on a hat or apply a UV-protective spray to protect your hair from the sun.
Make use of a clarifying shampoo. Your hair may appear lifeless and dull due to product buildup from sweat, sunscreen, and other factors. To eliminate this accumulation and bring back the lustre to your hair, use a clarifying shampoo once per week.
Regularly condition your hair to keep it moisturised and shield it from chlorine, saltwater and sun damage. To add more hydration and defence, use a leave-in conditioner.
Give your hair a vacation from using heat-styling products like straighteners and curling irons, which can harm your hair and increase its susceptibility to breaking. Instead, try no-heat hairstyles like braids or buns or embrace your natural hair texture.
After swimming, rinse your hair with fresh water to remove any residue because salt water and chlorine can dry out your hair.
Maintain a balanced diet high in vitamins and minerals to keep your hair strong and healthy. Eat meals rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, and E, and protein.
Protection From Sun Damage
Sun damage is one of the biggest concerns during the summer months. Too much sun exposure can lead to sunburn, premature ageing, and skin cancer. That's why protecting your skin and hair from the sun's harmful rays is essential.
To protect our hair, we use hats and scarves. But what about our skin? What should be done?
As mentioned in the hack's above, applying sunscreen is a must. But which is the right sunscreen?
To protect your skin from the damaging effects of UV radiation from the sun, it's essential to choose the correct sunscreen. Be sure to choose a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection
, which protects against UVA and UVB rays. Dermatologists advise selecting a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which is the minimum. Whether you have oily, dry, or sensitive skin, consider your skin type while selecting a sunscreen. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, look for non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and fragrance-free choices. Finally, remember to reapply sunscreen after swimming or sweating and use it liberally and regularly, at least every two hours.
Considering all these factors, Chicnutrix has recently launched Chicnutrix Block. This sunblock offers broad-spectrum protection and has SPF 45PA+++, Niacinamide and Adenosine. This Niacinamide sunscreen is made in Korea for Indian skin. It is lightweight and has no white cast, and while protecting your skin from sun damage Chicnutrix Block also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. What more could one ask for in sunscreen when getting these many benefits?

So, shield your hair from the sun's damaging rays using helmets and UV-protective sprays, and avoid heat styling products, just like you would block an ex's phone number.

Essentials Vitamins to be Wrinkle and Frizzy Free
There are a few essential vitamins that can help keep your skin wrinkle-free and your hair frizz-free:
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can help shield your skin from the harm that free radicals can do. Additionally, it supports collagen formation, which can reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Chicnutrix Super C is an effervescent Vitamin C tablet made with natural amla extracts and zinc, which is the best acne treatment and boosts immunity.
Vitamin E is an additional antioxidant that aids in shielding your skin from harm. Additionally, it possesses moisturising qualities that may lessen the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines.
A B vitamin necessary for strong hair and nails is Biotin. It can support healthy, strong hair and lessen hair breakage. Chicnutrix Bounce has Biotin present in it, which can help with this.
Calcium levels in the body must be controlled for good hair development; vitamin D helps with this. Additionally, it possesses anti-inflammatory qualities that may aid in soothing an itchy scalp.
For healthy skin and hair, vitamin A is helpful. It also possesses antioxidant qualities that may aid in lessening the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines.
Along with these vitamins, you should also consume collagen to get that youthful skin. What is collagen?
The body contains collagen, a protein form mainly found in the skin, bones, and connective tissues. It gives tissues and organs strength and structure and oversees the suppleness and hardness of the skin. And since the body cannot produce collagen alone, it must be ingested to keep the skin supple.
